When you can't find one, you make one. :D If the project goes well, more models will be coming!

Now that is one for me. Die cast or resin?

It's the Lambo LM002 made for Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei.

Great to see you're grasping the nettle. I guess all of us here have thought/fantasised about doing this but haven't had the time, cash or guts to actually follow the dream. I hope this is a success especially as our tastes and collections are pretty similar and I can see myself becoming a regular customer. I take it you are subcontracting the build? If so who is the builder? The pics suggest Yow.

Thank you!

It`s not Yow; this would gave pushed the price skywards. I love his work, but this would be too much of an investment. The builder is actually a shop in Ukraine; this is their first Western car, they only made East Bloc vehicles until now.

Stay tuned :)

I'm not interested in that model but I congratulate you on having the good fortune and patience to be able to get something produced that you wanted. It must be a truly great feeling to see this come together. I get a little bit of a rush just seeing it even though I don't want one.

I think that sums it up perfectly. Congratulations on seeing through your dream.

Of course you are allowed, this isn't one of "those" kinds of forums. :lol:
We congratulate you and hope we can support your efforts.

Can you also post a picture of the 1:1?

Congrats on the project!! glad you made it happen!

It is a bit off my collection topic although would make a nice couple to my black MC LM002 if the price fits my budget :)

Looking forward to more details! Can you reveal the production run?
